There is a saying: "Home is where the heart is." No matter where an individual may hail from, the idea of home is unique to each of us.

The “Home” project is part of an ongoing exploration surrounding the idea of the domestic landscape, developed in the multidisciplinary Art Foundation program at VCUQatar. 

First-year students in the Drawing Studio were directed by Professor Jesse Payne to pursue inquiries around personal objects and experiment with various mark-making techniques in order to translate domestic experiences into their work. This body of work represents a distinct approach to drawing around the meaning of home from a diverse and multi-cultural perspective.

This exhibition is a collaboration between VCUQatar, the U.S. Embassy in Qatar and the American Chamber of Commerce Qatar in support of Discover America Week Qatar 2016 (February 15 to 22).
